The forthcoming Paris Menswear Fashion Week Fall Winter 2015 is due a few weeks away, while Givenchy has recently released its latest lookbook for Givenchy Pre-Fall 2015 in this month. Much like the previous Givenchy Pre-Fall 2014 lookbook, the new collection consist a combination highlight of both menswear and womenswear, in contrasted to the antecedent gender-specific Givenchy Pre-Spring 2014 menswear. For this upcoming Pre-Fall 2015 season, Riccardo Tisci showcases a close-fitted 10 menswear looks along with 26 womenswear, although the womenswear seems much more formidable.
The dramatic new direction of the Givenchy Pre-Fall 2015 menswear collection is conceivably more upscale and distinctively lighter in range as compared to the previous pre-collection found in 2013 and 2014 that are predominantly inspired from streetwear culture. Despite this, there is no form of surprise to view such sudden transition, as the earlier Pre-Fall 2014 seeks similar relevance with the current Pre-Fall 2015 – the main principle is to subordinate print orientation through tailored focus formalwear. From monochromatic outwear topcoats, rain macs, wool-knit sweaters, and suiting options sported with continuation use of high-contrast band panelled detailing discovered from the Givenchy Fall Winter 2014 menswear pretty much sums up the current collection. The entire menswear collection features a leaner layering approach for a broader reach of wearability, a line-up of wardrobe essentials restyled through Tisci’s interpretation.
Materials wise exercised over the collection includes luxurious suede, wool, and generous black leather which played an evident role in characterizing each individual pieces. Contrast coloured patches are noticeably the new form of feature spotted on wool outwears, accompanied by double flap pocket styles distinct towards formal long coats and suits. While washed denims styles with biker ribbed panelling dressed contrast wool sleeves and imminent biker jeans flourish casualwear assortments. Completing every quintessential look with a pair of classic pointed chelsea boots or high-shine lace-ups. Checkout this season’s Givenchy Spring Summer 2015 Collection Wishlist.
High praises were mentioned on the new Givenchy Pre-Fall 2015 menswear collection and all-around impressing noticeable significance, while others condemn the degradation on its latest offerings and question their faithful loyalty. Perhaps this is not a collection worthy for the die-hard consumers who were eagerly looking forward for a ground-breaking print motif, after all it has been long overdue. The only print motifs channelling from the menswear lookbook are the arbitrary ripped paper texture and grimy print effects found on the beige coats and sweater, divulging a short distinct footnote – ‘LO’ or ‘LLO’, a concept what seems to be a similarly adaption from Raf Simons x Sterling Ruby collaboration collage series in Fall Winter 2014.
